COT Wizard 2.0

Posted 09-10-2011 at 11:54 PM by jpvtien [Show Appreciation] What's This?
Updated 11-04-2011 at 09:29 AM by jpvtien

Hi all,

The COT Wizard 2.0 has been released.

1. What's new in the version 2.0?
In new version I have fixed some critical bugs that make the program does not work:
  • Downloading data issue
  • Missing a lot of data of current year (2011)
  • Parse data, date format issue
  • Move the CFTC history URL to "COT Wizard.exe.config", so when CFTC change their url, we just go that file and change to new url instead of change the program
2. System Requirements
  • Operation system: Window 7, XP & Vista (suppose it will work well but I have not tested yet). (You can use virtual machine such as VirtualBox or VMWare to run COT Wizard 2.0, in case your PC/Laptop's OS is not Window).
  • This program require .NET 4 platform to run. You can download from following link:
Download .NET Framework 4
  • Link to download COT Wizard 2.0:
You can download this program from following link:
https://skydrive.live.com/?cid=79735...7BB3A7F5%21116
Download the COT_Wizard-2.0.zip file.
  • Step to install COT Wizard 2.0
a. Download and setup .NET 4 platform
b. Extract to COT Wizard 2.0 to your folder
c. Just Click on file "COT Wizard.exe" to run, you can create a shortcut if you want.
3. Actually, this program still doesn't have some features that I need, for example
  • Multi-charts in a form (window), price chart, etc. so you can view price chart with multi-COT indicators, very easy to analyze, right?
  • Every time download new data, it take long time to parse data because it will parse all of data that it has downloaded instead of parsing updated data.
  • Etc.
I do not plan to combine these features into COT Wizard 2.0 because I have a plan to develop my new tool (not started development yet).

For the original COT Wizard version, please check the Maigic's COT Wizard post, for more detail. The license of this program belong to him also. I have just customized his program only.

Best Regards,
Tien Pham

    I have not played so much with MT4 (I am using MT5 for learning Forex). However I see in the mql4 language, they support API for this purpose. For example
    1.Sound:
    a. API: void PlaySound( string filename)
    b. Sample: PlaySound("alert.wav");
    2. Send mail:
    a. API: void SendMail( string subject, string some_text)
    b. Sample: SendMail("from your expert", "Price dropped down to "+DoubleToStr(lastclose,Digits));
    3. etc..
    Just call the API when the conditions are matched.

    I have updated the COT Wizard to solve the automatic downloading data issue (For someone that has problem in data downloading). Now you can download the data manually and then let the program process the data, incase your internet connection is not stabile or other reasons. Please follow below steps
    1.    First of all, download new program from https://skydrive.live.com/?id=797356587BB3A7F5%21116 , the “COT Wizard-Manual Download Data.zip” file. Extract to your folder, copy the file and override on your old program file.
    2.    The get data from following link
    a.    Download the latest data, (this one you should download every week if your program can not update data weekly)
        http://www.cftc.gov/files/dea/history/dea_cit_txt_2011.zip
        http://www.cftc.gov/files/dea/history/deahistfo2011.zip
        http://www.cftc.gov/files/dea/history/deacot2011.zip
        http://www.cftc.gov/files/dea/history/com_disagg_txt_2011.zip
        http://www.cftc.gov/files/dea/history/fut_disagg_txt_2011.zip
    b.      History data (this one just download first time of using only)
        http://www.cftc.gov/files/dea/history/dea_cit_txt_2006_2010.zip
        http://www.cftc.gov/files/dea/history/deahistfo_1995_2010.zip
        http://www.cftc.gov/files/dea/history/deacot1986_2010.zip
        http://www.cftc.gov/files/dea/history/com_disagg_txt_hist_2006_2010.zip
        http://www.cftc.gov/files/dea/history/fut_disagg_txt_hist_2006_2010.zip
    3.    After download all of above file (must be 10 files), put all the data in the COT Data folder, C:\Users\{your window account}\Documents\Stock Market Magic\COT Wizard 2.0, folder (don’t unzip those files because the program will does it for you ) . Please check the attachment (the third picture) for more detail.
    4.    Open the COT Wizard program, and check the “Weekly Update” check box and then click on the “Update data” button to process the data.
    In case you want the program automatic download weekly data for you. Go to the program folder, open the “COT Wizard.exe.config” file and change <add key="UpdateManual" value="true"/> to <add key="UpdateManual" value="false"/>. Then from the second time, you check the “Weekly Update” to update new data latest week. If it can not download automatic you should download manually.

    Hi jpvtien,

    It appears your SkyDrive account was already terminated. Please correct it if you are genuinely kind enough to share with your Magic's mod.
    Second, please correct the location of the chart graduations to the right side as that sounds funny.
    Finally, please read the Steve Brise book or else and then devise MACD, RSI or no matter what indis you want if your project aims for anything more than reinventing the wheel.

    Cheers!
    P.S.
    If you would feel uncomfortable to fulfill the above, please e-mail me at thankyou@tokyo.com. I'll inform you of a COT setup with 100% accuracy to pinpoint 1000 pips move in a month.

    Just a question, I have not ever even looked at COT data. But are there traders that look at the COT data on tuesdays open and use that to trade off of as there main indicator? Also traders using COT data, are they mainly swing traders? Is it Posible to day trade using COT, say with a position from open to 10am or 11am?

    Hi slow to learn
    In my opinion, COT data is possible to swing trading or position trading and not a good idea for day trading or scalping.

    Hi Slow to learn

    I am sorry for replying you late because I am so busy last week. Please remember the release date is on Friday of each week and not on Tuesday (but the report date in COT data is Tuesday ). The release usually includes data from the previous Tuesday. Fore more detail please take a look at CFTC. You can use COT data as main indicator (use COT indicator as a fundamental indicator) but you should combine with traditional technical indicators (to determine the your entry (buy/sell signal)) as well.

    Regards

    Hey Guys,

    I've installed the program but when I try to update the data I only seem to get a few weeks worth. I've sent the error messages to Tien but I thought maybe someone had experience with this.
